Question:

Insect bite

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Woke up with a bite between my toes it is red purple like a blood blister with a puss pocket on top it is very itchy what do you think bit me?


Answer:

There is a chance that it could be a spider bite from the way you have described it. I would go see your doctor and get it taken care of just incase.
